KARACHI: Former Minister for Ports and Shipping Babar Khan Ghauri on Sunday dismissed the allegations made by Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Pakistan leader Amir Khan.
Ghauri refuted Khan's allegation of the former owning 31 petrol stations. "I would like the MQM-Pakistan leader to provide evidence to back his claim," said the formal federal minister.
The former minister said the public is being distracted by political rhetoric instead of elected officials taking concrete steps to resolve their problems.
Talking to Geo News, Ghauri said: "I don't wish to engage in mudslinging but I have the right to take legal action against such allegations."
Speaking at MQM Pakistan's Youm-e-Tasees yesterday, Khan claimed that Ghauri owns as many as 31 petrol pumps in Karachi.
“Babar Ghauri, who owns properties of millions of dollars in American, owns 31 petrol pumps here in Karachi. Did he inherit it from his father?” he said. “He should give the money to the worker, he has run away after looting from here.”
